Blizzard recently announced their upcoming re-release of the Classic World of Warcraft version. This was surprising news to hear but long time awaited as well. However, it remains unknown when this will happen because they have to re-implement the oldest game version into their current battlenet system. Some players are also vouching for Talent tree changes – something like Paladin taunt in the protection tree, mainly because most of the talents tree were completely useless then. There was no DPS raid spec for Druids, Shamans, Priests, Paladins. Warriors were supposed to be the tanks. Rogues, Hunters, Mages and Warlocks were supposed to be the DPS and the rest of the classes mentioned Healers. We remain open to all posibilities though, and we are eagerly waiting for more news from Blizzard.
On the other side, the “not-so-final” disaster happened on the Elysium Vanilla WoW project just a month ago, on 16th October 2017. The main project owners, Crogge and Shenna were accused of account and gold selling drama, so one of the admins called Whitekidney “stole” the database and re-released the project under a new name called Light’s Hope.
Some consider it to be a true renegade project, as it remains unknown if the generated gold and accounts were really deleted as the new project owners claim. To combat this, the Elysium project released a new, fresh realm called Nighthaven. Surprisingly, it gained a lot of traction and the populations peaks up to 4000 players during the weekend days which might increased even further.
Light’s Hope, in order to distinguish the Elysium realm from the previous “father” project, renamed the realm into Lightbringer.
We are more than eager to see how both projects develop further. There has been announcement that TBC version is in development by the Elysium Project, and more players have been popping into the Kronos realms, we guess the reason being the retail Classic WoW annoucement.
